How do canned mandarin oranges become so pith-free and perfectly segmented? You can finally found out tonight at the NYC Food Film Festival closing ceremony where the Dutch documentary Mandarin will play at 8:50 p.m. The free event at Water Taxi Beach starts at 7:45 p.m. with an awards ceremony for the films that have been playing all week long, followed by a viewing of other shorts, including Save The Honey Bees at 8:30 p.m., starring our very own thespian Ed Levine, and the Power of the Peep at 9:15 p.m. (let's just say some folks take Lord of the Rings-themed Peep dioramas very seriously).
Disclaimer: You may pick mandarin oranges out of your Chinese chicken salads until forever after watching the behind-the-scenes factory visit.
